This is the fourth in the Dancing Cleanse series. it was artist-in-elementary schools program. There is a lot of “club activities” in Japanese schools, but of course, it’s not a night club, it’s a club of extracurricular activities. And the daily cleaning activities are the same as when I was in elementary school. It seems to me that cleaning plays strongly as a discipline in schools. It seems to be rare for students to do the cleaning in a foreign school. After several sessions, the video ended with an outdoor performance using bubbles. At that time, I asked the students to take a camera with them to take a video. They all had expressions that they didn’t show in school shoots, and I was impressive to see some getting covered in bubbles, others filming it, and students looking at the situation from a distance.
